I bought these armchairs from separate homes, but the style of the legs made me think that they would make a good pair so I decided to cover them both in the same olive green fabric (the green is slightly deeper than it appears in the photos), and I think it was a good choice – don’t they look rather handsome together? Personally I prefer the bucket-shaped chair, but both chairs are very stylish – and pretty comfortable! In addition to re-upholstering the chairs, we’ve also sanded and varnished the legs, so the overall look is very clean. It may be a lot to pay for a pair of chairs, but if you look at what a contemporary version of these chairs would cost, you’ll realise that they’re pretty decent value for money!
